Great to see the fruition of a long overdue genre that needed exploring. If you need some contributions lemmee know.

I purchased the Beatle Buddies at a garage sale about a decade ago. Much like somebody with Alzheimer's, I put the platter on about once a year (like right now) thinking that the schlock value alone will make it rock. Every time it's the same disappointment. It reminds me of a drug store commercial jingle. No matter how much I will it to sound like the Shaggs, it's just not quite bad enough to come back to the state of goodness.

Okay, okay... The instrumental track "Little Miss Margie" is pretty boss. The Beatle Buddies have been redeemed (slightly).

Look into Todd Rungren's Utopia. They did a knock-off album of the Beatles called Face the Music.

And then there's XTC as the Dukes of Stratosphere...

"Look into Todd Rungren's Utopia. They did a knock-off album of the Beatles called Face the Music."

It was Deface the Music. Yes, they were intentionally ersatz Beatlesploitation tunes.

I so agree with Jonny about this:

"No matter how much I will it to sound like the Shaggs, it's just not quite bad enough to come back to the state of goodness."

Very well stated.
